After scripting both Sicario and Hell or High Water, Taylor Sheridan’s coming to his directorial debut, Wind River with about as much goodwill as possible. And though being a great screenwriter doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be just as successful as a director, this trailer bodes well for his talents behind the camera:
There’s an old school vibe to this that I really enjoy. Who doesn’t like a solid murder mystery with a great cast in a novel setting? The Avengers reunion of Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen is exciting (particularly with Renner as some kind of Grizzly Adams badass), and I’m always down for a Graham Greene performance.
Wind River is currently playing Cannes and will get a release this August. Fingers crossed it’s as good as it looks here.
